SCHOOL SYSTEM TO PAY FEDS $1 MILLION FOR WHISTLE-BLOWER CASE AFTER FALSIFYING GRANT APP

The Fairfax County Public Schools is repaying $1million to the federal government after forging signatures on an application for grant money the school system used to help at risk students prep for college and careers. A school employee writing the grant application lied about receiving private-sector in kind contributions from private companies and forged signatures to make it look legitimate. A whistle-blower filed a case under the False Claims Act.
